J.T. says, " my time at Prep was instrumental in helping me to reach this point.  The Prep community and its teachers were very supportive during my time there and helped prepare me for the success I've had in college and law school.  In particular, Mrs. Dowell and Mrs. Webb-Browning provided me with a lot of mentorship, and are two of my all-time favorite teachers.  I'm very thankful for everything Prep has given me, and I credit the Prep community for helping me to progress to where I am now!".
